The 80th Annual National Association of Farm Broadcasting is underway in Kansas City, Missouri and we've been able to sit down with the who's who in the ag industry this week.

Farm Credit Services of America is a leading provider of credit and insurance services to farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness in South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, and Wyoming. I was able to sit down with Fallon Savage, a Senior Vice President at FCS America, and discuss land financing, proteins, and what the future looks like as we head into 2024 and beyond.

Take a listen to the interview in the audio clip below.

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
